Microbiology today

We have a group of nice articles on careers in microbiology and chance to view  “Women in Microbiology – Esther Lederberg” a live session from Microbe 2017. Science articles today include Predictors of phenotypic switching in bacteria, Determinants of bone mass regulation by the gut microbiota (in mice), and Phylogenetic and functional diversity of bacteria in soils.
